Cavaliers Rebound, Defeat Celtics in Game 4 of Eastern Conference Finals

Cavaliers Rebound, Defeat Celtics in Game 4 of Eastern Conference Finals

James, determined to bounce back after a poor 11-point haul in Game 3, then steadied the Cleveland nerves in the fourth quarter, bringing the Cavaliers home for the win as Boston's courageous effort came up short.

If the previous, embarrassing contests between these two teams (both remarkably easy Cavaliers wins, 117-104 and 130-86) account for anything, your Boston Celtics pulled off a sports miracle on Sunday night.

But that flawless storm is now a thing of the past, which is why the Celtics are battening down the hatches for Hurricane James - LeBron James - in Game 4.

Thomas (hip) is done for the postseason, so it was backcourt mate Avery Bradley taking the big shot and delivering the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left to cap a comeback from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit.

"He's got to be aggressive, get downhill, play like he's been playing, play confident", shooting guard J.R. Smith said Monday after practice.

More alarmingly, James was unable to conjure one of his trademark rallies in the 4th quarter as the Celtics began to sense a vital win.

Iran says has built third underground ballistic missile factory: Fars
The test was in direct violation of United Nations resolution 2231, which stated that Iran could not conduct such acts. He went on to state that "the next missile to be produced is a surface-to-surface missile".

James accepted responsibility afterward, saying simply “I didnt have it” during a postgame news conference that was preceded by a run-in with a heckling fan in the hallway.

But James wasnt himself Sunday night, not by a long stretch.

"We have to go in with a bunker mentality that we had in Game 1 and Game 2, to go out and do what we do, but we have to defend", James said.

"I was just pretty poor", James said. "Not just in the second half". Me, personally, I didn't have it. But me personally I didn't have it. "I'm not going to criticize him one bit".

There wasn't much to gush about, that's for sure. Cavs F LeBron James trails Michael Jordan (5,987 points) by just 28 points for first place in National Basketball Association playoff history in scoring.

For a good while, it was looking like the Eastern Conference finals were going to be headed back to Boston with the series tied 2-2. "You move on and hopefully be better the next game".

Boston shot 47 percent from the field and 35 percent from the 3-point line in the first half of Game 4 on their way to building as much as a 16-point lead.

Kyrie Irving led Cavs with 29 points, and Kevin Love added 28 points and 10 rebounds. He also had five turnovers.

His teammates and coach are confident he will be when the best-of-seven series against the Boston Celtics, led 2-1 by Cleveland, resumes tonight at 8:30 at Quicken Loans Arena. It's about us moving the ball, sharing the ball, playing more for one another, and it doesn't matter who you put in front of us.

Two teams that will inevitably face off in the NBA Finals for a third straight year bring with them identical 12-0 records. "It's tough. And we really didn't know what to expect".

"The key for us was to chip away", said Bradley, who made eight three-pointers for the game.

However, Thomas' replacement, Marcus Smart, scored a career-high 27 points and handed out seven assists, and Bradley had 20 points.
